Tuncurry Waste Management Centre

Tuncurry Waste Management Centre

Tuncurry Waste Management Centre was established in 1976 and is now operating as a transfer station and community recycling center. All waste material is now transported to Bucketts Way (Taree)  Landfill for disposal. The existing Material Recovery Facility (MRF) has since been replaced with a new state of the art material recovery facility. Recyclable material collected from your kerbside collection is delivered to this facility where it undergoes a sort / separation process before the products are baled and sent to market.
